Double up: Chantecaille & Laura Mercier
Summer is here and it's time to shop my makeup stash...
Although I have oily and acne prone skin I hate a heavy or overly matte foundation in the summer because lets face it having a trowel load of makeup sweat off your face is not attractive. I like to keep the face makeup minimal and light so I can focus more on the eyes with some winged eyeliner or with a bold statement lip.
To achieve this I have been wearing a tinted moisturiser... well two tinted moisturisers; the Chantecaille Just Skin Anti Smog Tinted Moisturiser in the shade Bliss and the Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturiser in the colour Bisque. When I wear these alone I just cant seem to make them work the Chantecaille Just Skin is too pale in colour with peach undertones and a little thick in consistency for a tinted moisturiser although great if you need extra coverage and the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser is too dark for my skin. I mixed them to get my perfect shade (half a pea size of both) then applied with my fingers because who really needs any fuss in the morning? and together they created a light and dewy finish. The finish was glowing but not shiny and my blemishes still peaked through but it was nothing a concealer wouldn't sort.
I'm so pleased I managed to get the Chantecaille Just Skin to work for me and now I can start to get over the *deep breath* £58 price tag.
